please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I DO think that some of the black-or-white apraisials administered by tuffnutparka are, at least, prejudicial.
Is, for example, everyone of the clientele at one of his least favoured pubs a 'non-handler'? Are everyman and woman a 'handler' at one of his favoured pubs? Does he or I or anyone else know the meaning of these terms?
No,no, no, no and no I think are the answers to these questions.
I could be wrong but I don't think I am.

A non-handler's lair.

Now refurbished re-opened as a Vintage Inn. Still a Mitchell and Butler outfit but this place is now very much food led.(There is an Ember Inn - The Gate - not far away.) However, although the previous team appear to have been booted, the new staff are friendly and welcoming. Went with some Aussie friends visiting who commented favourably on the style and decor - perhaphs a reflection of their home pub style. Food menu quite acceptable and the real ale afficionados are not dissapointed except maybe by limited choice. Dearer than before but not grossly excessive like some so called gastropubs. In the current economic climate I await the outcome of this brand change though this area is more well heeled that some town centre places.

Living in Harrow where there is little decent in the pub line to comment upon I've kinda made this my local. Means only 2 pints a visit cos I drive there but Lisa and her people are worthy folk who do very well given the corporate cloak of Ember Inns. Genuine welcome smiles - not the creepy customer care stuff
Good ales always available - (though not enough mild for me) and the food is well priced and usually well cooked and served promptly.

The setting is good and when we have overseas visitors (often due to NZ connections) we like to take them thereas it impresses from the outside and does not disappoint once through the doors

I live in Pinner and there are no decent pubs within 5 miles except Ye Old Green Man. Really like the pub, beer is always on good form, the Timothy Taylor Landlord that I had the other week was so damn good that I had 3 pints. Glad that they don't let anklebiters run amok, not everyone wants to see badly behaved children when they are drinking their beer.

kids are not welcome in ember inns pubs.. not everyone likes to enjoy their meal out with other peoples offspring running amok or screaming and throwing food around, and its wonderful that this chain limits it to over 14s. I expect peoples kids to be running around if I visit macdonalds.
but not if I go to a pub for a meal. well done ember inns,
This pub is one of their best. great location very friendly bar staff and decent food. and no thugs whenever I have been there so its a relaxing place to sit for any decent adult. for people with kids croxley green harvester welcomes them and isnt far away.

We got to the door of this place, before we had to get back in the car - no kids allowed. Our 3 year old at the time was a keen eater-outer, and he was in tears!

Still a nice pub, despite the "refurb" mentioned by deskjockey. Visited 26/09/08 (early evening Friday),
Wadworths 6X excellent (if slightly warm), and like all Ember Inns the food is reasonably priced. Service was good as it was not crowded when I visited.

This was a good, old pub that was "refurbished" by Ember Inns. So, the original 18th Century wood was ripped out, and some new laminated furniture was installed. Still, the beer is fine, the service is reasonable, and there are no TV screens. However, it can get busy at weekends, and the food service can be slow. Overall, a good pub, with no tracksuit wearers.

Have enjoyed a pleasant meal and drink in this pub. The real ale was in excellent condition. Staff were very friendly and seemed concerned that we had enjoyed our meal. Can highly recommend.

Has anyone taken kids to this pub and are they welcome?

We revisited this pub after a 30 year absence abroad. Good food and lots of choices. Non-smoking area to eat but fills up quickly. I plan to visit England again this year and will plan a meal at this pub.

Bar is on the smoking side which has bad extraction so gets fuggy. Nooks & Crannies with 3 open fires in different areas and the purposely homey feel with odd furniture make this a decent chain pub. Can't vouch for food but changing guest beers add interest. Low or no piped music allows conversation. Staff very friendly & helpful.

I have been trying to find this pub for ages on line. Used to go here quite often when my family lived in Northwood 25 years ago. Was young, but used to have brill lunches with my family. Would love to get back, but just a bit difficult since when I come back to the UK, I am mostly staying in London with mates. I hope it' still holding up. Cheers/Joe/USA

Located opposite White Hill (the road to Harefield) Ye Olde Greene Manne has been a local landmark for a number of generations.

Recently refurbished and taken over by Ember Inns, much of the original charm and more importantly the name has remained. Now a popular gastro pub ideal for Sunday lunch and a visit any other day.

An extensive menu, nice atmosphere plus Adnams, IPA & Bass on draught. There are beer gardens either side of the pub plus a large car park out front.
